Question by raymond_1265: Should I go to Community College or 4 year college for Nursing?
I’m graduating in two months and I want to become a nurse. I applied to some universities around here (Seton Hall, Rutgers) and I got declined by all of them. I have a 3.6 GPA but my SAT score was a 1350. I got accepted into Farleigh Dickinson and Dominican College. At FDU, I didn’t get accepted into their School of Nursing, but I can apply to it after taking the basic courses needed for Nursing. At Dominican College, I got into their Nursing Program with a scholarship. I applied to Bergen Community for Nursing but I didn’t get into the Nursing Program, should I go to BCC, take my gen. ed. courses then apply to their nursing program? What’s the best thing to do? Thanks in advanced! Sorry if it’s too much to read!

I definitely recommend checking out the community college. It typically costs less and is a great way to knock out your gen eds while paying less. If you work hard and do well, it’ll make you a more attractive candidate when you decide to reapply to the nursing program. You’ll have more money in your pocket (or less debt) and an associate’s degree to boot.
